Narcissists manipulate others using toxic ideas. In this podcast, we decode narcissists and how they operate, we expose and deconstruct toxic ideas, and we learn how to negotiate effectively with narcissists. And, last but not least, we learn to break the toxic patterns during and after relationships, disinfect mental wounds and heal, so we can have a happy life afterwards and limit the damage narcissists inflict upon us.

076. The First Narcissist Red Flag Is A Test
With narcissists, there always is a first moment we sense something is wrong. A strange look. A fight coming out of nowhere. A suggestion they think we are a bad person. Them stabbing us in the back (or the face).
What can we learn from this? How can we use this to reduce the risk of being taken advantage of in the future? I share some thoughts and stories.
075. Why Don't Narcissists Change?
We often wonder why narcissists don't change. It seems illogical, yet it is what we observe. But... why would they change?
Here are some thoughts on why they don't - and why we don't want to change either.
074. Exposing Narcissists' Games
Narcissists play toxic games. Many of these are common and can be recognised. In this episode, I share some tips to recognise games and we analyse a few of the games narcissists commonly play, as well as a few suggestions to avoid getting up in autopilot.

073. Recogise A Narcissist's Double Standards When Arguing
Narcissists use double standards to create conflict. How? They escalate debates using semi-bad faith methods, being a bit provocative - but when we match them, they accuse us of doing what they did. What can we do? Tune in to find out!
072. Choose Your Enemies Wisely (And Why Narcissists Don't Want You To)
Narcissists want us to turn against the people who actually have our backs. Why? It isolates us, makes us easier to manipulate - and makes it easier for THEM to do the manipulation.
071. Calling Out A Narcissist's BS
When talking with narcissists and toxic people, we can get caught in bad faith arguments. How can we recognise this and avoid getting stuck in narc logic and, instead, highlight how their logic is illogical, unhealthy and dishonest?
In this podcast exclusive episode, I share a few tips. Remember to tune in on YouTube at www.youtube.com/c/fribersson for more episodes.
My 2nd ever podcast heard.
I will share and recommend you at any given opportunity to do so. Your mind is either educated or from a experienced level of successful mindset to overcome. A lot of the scenario’s were relatable and also gave me some things to think about myself. Kind of like a know yourself and seek self improvement type of thing. My daughters mother has the 1 in a million persona. But I’ve been fighting for my daughter and lost so much trying to smell and see if the milk is bad. Clearly the date says it’s expired. Why take the cap off and smell when all I had to do was toss it out. That was the objective anyways. Thanks for your light of knowledge and personal experiences.
Short and sweet
Life Changing information for all narcissist survivors.
Narcissist info is helpful, the misogyny is not.
He does a great job helping people identify toxic behavior but when it comes to giving “insight” on pop culture events there is a definite misogynistic view. When he first referenced Scott Adams I thought he meant someone other than the cartoonist. He did it again and very clearly stated that was who he meant. Womp womp.
